Adjusting Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy graphics for a weak PC

How to get stable 60 FPS in a new action adventure in the Marvel Universe


Civilization VI - Boost FPS & I...
Civilization VI - Boost FPS & Increase Performance - Low End PC

If last year's Avengers demanded a top-end gaming computer even to play at 1080p, then this year's novelty based on the "Guardians of the Galaxy" has noticeably more modest appetites. Optimization is much better here, and even owners of systems that meet only the minimum system requirements can play with a beautiful picture.


Nevertheless, not everyone has even a GeForce GTX 1060. Therefore, we have put together a guide to the correct graphics settings in Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy for owners of weaker graphics cards.


What computer do you need for Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy (system requirements)

The game can load up to 16 processor threads. Therefore, even an Intel Core i9 or AMD Ryzen 9 cannot be considered redundant. In addition, for a stable 60 FPS at maximum settings at 1080p, a video card of the level of a GeForce GTX 1070 or Radeon RX 590 is required. However, like most third-person action games, the game plays well at a stable 30 FPS. Therefore, a bundle from the old Core i5 (or the new Core i3) and the GTX 1060 is enough.

As for the official system requirements, they are designed only for 1080p (1920x1080) and 2K (2560x1440) resolutions. We reviewed the game benchmarks and added recommendations for 4K (3840x2160) gaming.

Official minimum system requirements (1080p @ 60 FPS, low preset):

  • Operating system : Windows 10 (64-bit only!).
  • Processor : Intel Core i5-4460 / Ryzen 5 1400.
  • Video card : NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 (or AMD equivalent).
  • RAM : 8 gigabytes.

Official Recommended System Requirements (1440p @ 60 FPS, high preset):

  • Operating system : Windows 10 x64.
  • Processor : Intel Core i7-4770K / AMD Ryzen 5 1600.
  • Video card : NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 Super (or AMD equivalent).
  • RAM : 16 gigabytes.


4K @ 30 FPS PC (tested):

  • Operating system : Windows 10 x64.
  • Processor : Intel Core i5-8400 / AMD Ryzen 5 3400.
  • Video card : NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 / Radeon RX 5700.
  • RAM : 16 gigabytes.

4K @ 60 FPS PC (Tested):

  • Operating system : Windows 10 x64.
  • Processor : Intel Core i7-9700K / AMD Ryzen 7 3700X.
  • Video card : NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti / Radeon RX 6800.
  • RAM : 16 gigabytes.

Optimization Tips for Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy



Next, we will briefly analyze each setting and give tips on how to increase FPS in Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy.

  • "Full Screen". Enable full screen mode as well as exclusive full screen mode. This is to prevent the system from wasting resources on maintaining the desktop.
  • "Vertical sync". In third person single player games, it is worth turning on vertical sync. It will make the video sequence as smooth as possible by equalizing the rendering time of all frames and limiting the performance to 60 or 30 FPS (screen refresh rate or half). A small input lag will appear, but it does not interfere in games of this genre.
  • Resolution Scale. If your video card does not support DLSS (the GeForce RTX series is required), then you can use the usual upscaling - stretching the picture to the screen resolution from the lowered one, without processing. But we do not recommend doing this - all the graphics in the game will immediately become "soapy". Therefore, it is better not to lower this parameter below 100 and leave the "Dynamic resolution rate" off in the "Display" tab .
  • Anisotropic Texture Filtering. Corrects blurring of surfaces located at an angle to the camera (technical rendering feature). On most relatively modern video cards, it has little effect on performance. Therefore, you can safely set the maximum quality to 16x.
  • "Level of detail". Responsible for the elaboration and the number of small details in the background. You can noticeably reduce the processor load if you lower it to medium quality. This will make the FPS more stable.
  • "Shadow quality". Traditionally one of the most "gluttonous" graphics parameters. Fortunately, the average quality looks good enough, so this is the best choice.
  • "Quality of textures". The higher the quality of the textures, the clearer and more detailed the surfaces of objects look. But to set the maximum quality, you need a 6 gigabyte video card. If you have less, reduce.
  • Screen space reflections. Reflections are another resource-intensive setting, along with shadows. On most PCs weaker than the minimum system requirements, it is best to turn it off. However, all glossy surfaces will become more matte.
  • "Motion blur". Smoothing motion for a speed effect. It also helps to make animations smoother at FPS below 60. It is better to enable it, but if you do not like this effect, you can disable it. The performance is not affected, like all subsequent parameters.
  • Radial Blur. Slight additional blur for a softer picture. Most will choose to turn it off to make the image clearer.
  • Lens flare. Glare from bright light sources on the screen. Customize to your liking.
  • "Depth of field". Blurring backgrounds in cinematic scenes. Better to turn it on.
  • Light scattering. Increased detail of light beams breaking through slits. It does not affect performance on modern video cards. And on outdated ones it is better to turn it off.
